REGISTRATION FOR THE 2016 – 2017 HISTORY CENTRE SEASON OPENS ON JUNE 2ND AT 9:00 AM

Registration Tips:

When registering, please ensure that your program date does not coincide with an early dismissal school day. Our programs work best when we have our entire allotted programming time to work within.

The Registration Form provides space for the contact information of the person registering for program(s), as well as the contact information for the teacher(s) that will be attending the program(s). Please ensure that the contact information for the teacher attending the program, with the class, is entered into the Registration Form. This information is vital as it is used to ensure that the attending teacher is prepared for their time at the History Centre.

Registration confirmation e-mails will be sent out 1 to 2 months prior to your program date.

Starting on June 2nd at 9:00 AM REGISTER for a History Centre Program!

Fees for the 2016/2017 History Centre Season:

  • The fee for all History Centre programs is: $325.00 per program.
  • Together, the Edmonton and District Historical Society & the Phyllis Arnold Learning Fund, rebate every registered program $150.00 of the program fee. Therefore, the total fee for all History Centre Programs is as follows: $325.00 – $150.00 = $175.00
  • Your institution will be charged the full fee of $325.00. When your class arrives at the History Centre, a rebate cheque for $150.00 will be remitted to the leading teacher attending with the class.

The Curricular Programming Team is looking forward to seeing you, this new school year!

"The tour of the Precinct was really interesting and very engaging for the children. There were so many hands on activities for them to participate in that they were always engaged. I love that they are allowed to touch and explore many of the items around the precinct. That makes such a difference to keep them engaged, on task and motivated. The learning connections between what we talked about in school and what we saw were evident in the conversations between the kids and the interpreters."
